Holding Our Children Hostage

Baylie Hoffman, a West Virginia high school senior writes:

The fact that I am starting my senior year of high school on a laptop is absolutely mind boggling. Let me explain a few reasons why. This just scratches the surface.

There are 75 active cases in my county of approximately 56,450 people. READ. THAT. AGAIN!!!! Okay, maybe that didn’t sink in. Let me put it into perspective.

75 is .13% of 56,450. So a TENTH of a percent of the population of my county, has Covid right now. Yet, the people in charge have decided that it’s unsafe to attend school, sporting events, and social activities? WHAT?!

I agree.  Why are we not letting all West Virginia students get back to school?

Viruses spread, run their course and then decline.  No evidence shows that any of the interventions that have taken place, such as lockdowns, social distancing, or face masks are effective at containing the spread of the virus.  The fatality rate for those under age 44 is 0.01%, the same as the fatality rate for automobile accidents.  Children are not known to be a significant transmitter of COVID-19. For ages 45 to 54 the fatality rate is 0.14%.  For those up to age 55 to 64, there is a higher fatality rate of 0.48%.

So why all the hysteria.  Virologists understand that viruses can and will spread, and that after a period of time, many will have been infected, and then herd immunity will take effect.  So it is not the number of cases that we should be concerned about, but rather excess mortality.  That number for the United States appears to be declining, and will become more clear in the coming weeks. 

So yes, open all of the schools.  If any staff member is immune compromised, then they should be excused from coming to the school.  Teachers and staff would do well to turn off the main stream media and base their decisions on the facts mentioned here.

Consider also that only 6% of all the fatalities reported as COVID-19 fatalities involved only COVID-19.  All the rest involved comorbidities.  Some may be closely related to COVID-19 infection, so the diagnoses may be reasonable.  But others are not so clear, such as heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure   and “other medical conditions”.  (See a description here).

Also, let’s consider the real damage to the social and psychological well-being of our children by forcing them to distance themselves from one another, wear masks, or, in Baylie’s case, stay at home altogether. 

The West Virginia legislature should convene immediately and put an end to Governor Justice’s unjustified mandates.  It should fall to each individual and family, in the case of minors, to decide what actions are appropriate.  If those who deem themselves at high risk wish to wear a face mask, fine.  But it is not the role of the government to mandate “protective measures” based on dubious assumptions of effectiveness.  The numbers bandied about since the beginning of this “pandemic” have been highly inflated, and continue to be inaccurate.

Unmasking the COVID-19 Hysteria in West Virginia and the United States

Unmasking the Covid-19 Hysteria in West Virginia and the United States.

                COVID-19 is what I would call the first political disease.  Decisions are not being made based on sound scientific principles, but rather on a mix of ignorance, political agendas and corporate greed and conflicts of interest.

In West Virginia, there have supposedly been 5480 cases and 102 deaths as of July 23rd, 2020.  I say supposedly, because Covid-19 may be listed as the cause of death when, likely, there were two or more other serious underlying conditions.  In the case of seasonal flu, that is not considered a reportable disease.  But Covid-19 was made a reportable disease.  In fact, Covid-19 had to be listed on the death certificate, even when it may not have been the actual cause of death.

Right now, according to the official West Virginia Department of Health website 78 people are hospitalized and 33 are in the ICU.  Underlying conditions are not listed.  Age is not listed.

The daily deaths in West Virginia are between 0 and 1 person.  78 people are hospitalized for COVID-19 (or with COVID-19, and other confounding illnesses?) and 33 are in the Intensive Care Unit.

Is this a state of emergency?  First of all, we don’t know the age or other illnesses that those affected have.  Secondly, let’s compare this to deaths from influenza and pneumonia, which are usually grouped together, in West Virginia.  That number is about 450 deaths per year.  If the death rate continued at about one person every two days, then some 200 people would (supposedly) die from COVID-19, although in the great majority of cases, well over 90 %, there is some other illness present as well.

So why all the hype.  Why mask mandates which have no precedence, and no studies to show they are effective.  Why social distancing, with no studies either to show effectiveness.  These are political moves to make people fearful.  And who would want to make people fearful.  Could it be pharmaceutical companies, who will make billions if a vaccine, which is likely to do more harm than good, is released.  Could it be politicians, both on the right and left, who don’t want to see the United States be prosperous under the leadership of President Trump?  Could they have an agenda of not wanting President Trump to be reelected?

And why aren’t the media outlets focusing on the real suffering of many who have lost their businesses and are struggling to make ends meet.  Could it be that they don’t want people to think about these things, but only about how it is necessary to follow the (random) dictates of governors or others who wish to exceed their authority? 

What about going back to school.  Data shows that COVID-19 has an almost zero fatality rate among children, and that children are not a significant vector for transmitting the SARS-CO-V2 virus to adults.  So, again, is the refusal of teachers unions to go back to work based on what is best for society, or on another agenda?  In fact, when children are infected, with no symptoms, they can develop immunity, which will help the whole society move toward herd immunity.  So a greater number of cases is not bad.  Respiratory viruses move through the community, and people develop immunity.  Especially for those under 65 years of age, this virus is less lethal than influenza.  So, again, a larger number of cases is part of the inevitable progression of the disease. 

And since studies show that healthy asymptomatic people are not a primary transmission source of SARTS CO-V2, why the mask mandates?  Is it in the best interests of society, and respecting of personal rights and freedoms, or is there another agenda.

What about (un)social distancing.  Why is six feet the magic number?  Why not 3 ft. or 8 ft?  What studies have shown that mask and (un)social distancing mandates are an effective strategy for preventing the spread of SARS-COv2?  Answer: None.  Masking and (un)social distancing are based on hypotheses and political agendas, not facts.

And why aren’t there studies being done emphasizing the huge damage to health of delayed treatment for cancer, or diabetes, or a host of other illnesses.  How about depression, suicide and lost years of life?

Finally, the “protests” and riots following Memorial Day weekend lay to rest any thought that the COVID-19 “crisis” is not a political disease.  Suddenly, lock downs in places like Washington DC and Chicago were shattered with nary an arrest of the marauding “protesters” for violating mask and/or social distancing mandates.  Yet, before that, the mayors of these cities and many other jurisdictions had threatened that anyone who went out without a mask could face fines and arrests.  Yet that was not enforced among protesters.  In fact, Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington DC rebuffed and kicked out the National Guard, but was more than happy to let looters run rampant without being arrested.

Yes, COVID-19 is a political disease.  Governor Jim Justice of West Virginia who has promoted a false narrative that has caused the loss of God-given personal freedoms while parroting the false narrative of an “emergency” needs to be removed from office in November.  President Trump seems to be awakening more in recent days to this false narrative and the bad advice given by Anthony Fauci.  I hope that he continues to awaken to the real nature of this political disease.

Each day 21,000 children die from starvation and disease.

Each day some 25,000 people die of starvation

3,000,000 children die of hunger in India every year

Vikram Patel writes:

But what do the hundreds of millions of Indians who face penury as a consequence of these lock-downs think about these policies? Is the risk of contracting a flu-like illness worth your family going hungry for weeks or longer? Why is it so much worse than other deadly infectious diseases, from TB to Japanese Encephalitis, which have been killing millions each year for decades? How do people who live jammed cheek to jowl in squalid slums with no water to drink and no money to buy food “socially distance”, “wash hands thoroughly with soap” and “use sanitisers frequently”? Why did the people who queued up with me on the street outside a half-shuttered grocery store, minutes after the PM’s speech, to stock up on essentials, get lathi-charged by imperious police? This, in Goa, where the COVID-19 case count is an impressive zero.

Defeating Godless Globalism and Devilish Depopulation

Listen to Podcast

We are in need of a great spiritual re-awakening. The core of this awakening needs to be living for the sake of others. We see this spirit in the movement of the first Great Awakening in the United States in the period around 1740 to 1750. Daryl Bryant writes in an essay in The Coming Kingdom; Essays in American Millennialism & Eschatology

Rather than seeing the millennial kingdom unfolding in the events subsequent to the Awakening, Edwards believed that the Devil had succeeded in turning the movement away from its divine ground.  Consequently, Edwards turned to the development of an account of the Christian life centered on the overcoming of a parochial spirit, on rooting out the demons of self-centeredness in the Christian, the church and the wider culture.  (pp. 48-49)

What Is the Cost to Society of the Lockdowns?

Listen to the Podcast

In an article on the Children’s Health Defense Website, Dr. Toby Rogers writes:

Let’s examine 3 scenarios: lower bound, mid-range, and upper bound. Following the Brenner (1976) model, these figures all reflect the estimated cumulative impact of an increase in unemployment on mortality over a five-year lag period.

Lower bound. If the unemployment rate increases by 5 points as a result of the various lockdowns, then 294,170 additional lives will be lost, not from coronavirus, but from deaths of despair.

Mid-range. If the unemployment rate increases by 16.5 points (as predicted by Treasury Secretary Mnuchin), then 970,761 additional lives will be lost to deaths of despair.

Upper bound. And if the unemployment rate increases by 10-fold — which is what we are already seeing in several states — then 1,853,271 lives will be lost to deaths of despair from government orders to lock down, shut down, and shelter in place.

The magnitude of the association between unemployment and mortality is higher for men than women and higher in early career and middle career workers than older workers (Roelfs et al., 2011, p. 849). It seems reasonable to assume that the coronavirus economic crash will also disproportionately impact the poor and working classes who lack sizable financial reserves.
